i.
what do you think is the most important issue in this election?

 Public services

ii.
why did you make the decision to stand in this constituency and for this party (as an independent)?

because the Green party is the only mainstream party that doesn't have a neo-liberal economic programme and would halt privatisation of public services

iii.
what kind of vote are you expecting on May 5th?

enormous

iv.
aside from the vote what are you hoping to get out of this campaign?

elected

v.
in your view what is the greatest threat to our civil liberties at the moment?

Charles Clarke

vi.
Blair has taken us to war three times since coming to power (not including the occasional ad hoc bombing raid) in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. Can war ever be justified?

Military action in defence of something cherished can possibly be justified - lying about the reliable nature of intelligence material so that British soldiers and innocent Iraqi citizens died is not justifiable.

vii.
There is very little left to privatise in this country, if you had your way what would be brought into public hands.

Green Party has a well known policy of renationalising the railways and bringing a halt to PFI in schools and hospitals

viii.
Some environmental campaigners have started talking about nuclear power as a way to bring down CO2 emissions - what do you think of this?

it's a very selfish view that our grandchildren would quite rightly despise us for

ix.
Asylum and immigration will be central issues in this election. What action on this issue would you like to see the next government push through?

Jailing newspaper editors that created unnecessary moral panics

x.
What question do you wish was on this list but doesn't appear?

Which party best combines recognition of the need for change in global economic structures, reform of free market elements placed into public services, polices that allow quality of life and a healthy economy but respect for the environment, a healthy internal democracy and a viable chance of getting broad enough support to actually achieve progressive change within the next 20 years? Be honest.
